Where can I get Goldern syrup!

I've looked everywhere! I want to bake but can find Goldern syrup anywhere!
Or is there a alternative :-)

Re: Where can I get Goldern syrup!

Direct quote from our friend wikipedia:

In Germany, a similar product called Zuckerrübensirup (literally "sugar-beet syrup") is a popular spread, especially in the western part of the country around Cologne. The best known producer is the Grafschafter Krautfabrik which has produced Zuckerrübensirup for more than a hundred years. This syrup is almost always made from sugar-beet; golden syrup from sugar cane is extremely rare on the German market. There are two types of Zuckerrübensirup in Germany, a golden one, similar to golden syrup from sugar cane, and a brown syrup which is similar to dark treacle.

Peter is looking for Goldern Syrup, not golden syrup, and Migros don't sell it.

No idea what Goldern Syrup is (other than a typo) but Golden Syrup is oh so yummy on proper toast made with proper bread (not the cork tile rubbish)... but it's very bad for teeth and the waistline

I hope you'll be bringing some to Morges.
Oh and what's with the golden syrup? What you need on crumpets are lashings of butter and then just a tiny scrape of marmite.
